“A badly mismanaged opportunity”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Having spent some time at Danga Bay as we were staying in the marina we suffered from it's mismanagement. Lazio's restaurant is a disgrace - got food poisoning on more than one occasion. Green apple kasturi at Lazio is about the only edible item. With proper management and sensible pricing it could be successful like many of the restaurants in town in places like City Square. Lazio's bar seems to attract some of the most untalented "musicians" in Asia, who make up in noise for what they lack in talent.

“Mediocre attraction. Not reall outstanding.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

If you are a couple and you would like a place to date, you can come here. There are some attractions there and some restaurants and stalls to keep you occupied. However, the scenery at the bay aint that great. I repeat: the scenery is not that great, just mediocre. I personally hope they would plant more trees and plants and keep the bay clean.

“Small entertainment”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

I'm go to danga bay at night time for the amusement park, mostly for take photo. It's quite beautiful here with all the light up. The riding is for kids and cheaps but it take only 15 minutes to walk around and enjoy the night.
